True Monarch Yellow Mountain had still managed to catch Daoist Priest Cloudy Mist in the end… This time, Cloudy Mist would be sealed for a long, long time.
On the other hand, Senior White Two was in deep slumber, and no one knew for how long he was going to sleep this time around.
At this time, in the Jiangnan area.
Ye Si used a memory-erasing technique unique to the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion to delete all the memories related to today’s events from the mind of that blackmailer. Then, she also shoved some new, fabricated memories into his head.
If one were to simply erase another’s memories, blank spaces would be left behind. Whenever these blank spaces appeared, the subject would rack its brain in the hope of recalling what had happened within that frame of time, which would influence the effects of the memory-erasing technique to a certain degree.
Thereupon, Ye Si used to an illusory technique to add a new and lifelike memory to the mind of the blackmailer. In this memory, the blackmailer had a sudden idea and headed to a construction site to move the bricks from one place to another, and he kept working until he was dead tired… Then, when it was time to collect the payment for the day, he suddenly got hit by some building materials on the said construction site, getting severely injured.
After this new memory was added to his mind, the blackmailer continuously furrowed his brows in his sleep and muttered, “So tired, so tired… how many bricks do I still have to move? When will I finish moving all these bricks…? Aaaah, what is that hit me? I’m going to die, I’m going to die…”
From the looks of it, it was a nightmare filled with hardships and terrible luck!
After screaming, the blackmailer peacefully lay on the ground again, not moving in the slightest.
Song Shuhang lifted him and threw him into the van.
Guoguo and the two little lolis squatted on one side and blinked their eyes. “Senior Brother Shuhang, this matter is over just like this?”
“Yes,” Song Shuhang replied.
“That doesn’t sound right! According to the script, shouldn’t you first have a big battle with the evil energy of the Netherworld, narrowly winning and sealing this evil energy away?” Loli Zhu said.
Song Shuhang shrugged his shoulders, and said, “I’m sorry, but I’m still studying the theory of sealing techniques. I’ve never tried sealing anything before.”
Loli Zhu said, “That’s not cool.”
Guoguo said, “Senior Brother Shuhang, you really disappointed us.”
Shi said, “And he even said that we won’t be disappointed before bringing us here.”
“…” Song Shuhang.
But right at this time, Senior Sister Ye Si said, “Shuhang, that human cultivator stopped moving. Do we want to follow him and take a look?”
Earlier, she had left a mark on the body of that cultivator that acted as the ‘illusory voice’ to lure the blackmailer into accepting the evil power of the Netherworld. This mark could be used to track down the position of the opposite party, and from the looks of it, the target had now stopped moving.
The mark would stay behind for a limited amount of time. In addition, the opposite party was still a Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor. The longer the seal stayed in place, the higher the chances that the opposite party might discover it.
“Let’s go take a look. Guoguo, you three follow behind me and don’t reveal yourselves. The other party is a Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor, and I don’t have the assurance to guarantee everyone’s safety if something unexpected happens,” Song Shuhang reminded.
“We know what to do.” The three children quickly got fired up once more.
Ye Si stretched out her hand and brought her golden book out, starting to flip through the various pages of the book. After turning over seven or eight pages, she nodded, very satisfied, and said, “Found it. This time, let’s use this particular style to fly.”
Then, she used the golden book to wrap up Song Shuhang and the three children, taking off and heading toward the position of that human cultivator.
While it was flying high up in the sky, the golden book suddenly became transparent. At the same time, Song Shuhang and the three children, who were riding it, also became transparent.
“Senior Sister Ye Si, does your golden book have a different style on each page?” Guoguo asked out of curiosity.
“No, it doesn’t have that many styles. So far, it has only seventeen pages of styles. Anyway, I’m refining this treasure all the time, and each time a layer of magical seals is added to it, the book gains an additional style. For example, this transparent mode is a style that Pavilion Master Chu helped me devise, and even a True Monarch, whose strength is one big realm higher than mine, will have a hard time discovering me while it’s active.” Then, Ye Si also added, “This golden book is my life-bound magical treasure. Therefore, its effects are somewhat better than ordinary magical treasures’. Right… Shuhang, after you advance to the Fourth Stage Realm, you will also have to consider forging a life-bound magical treasure. Have you already decided what type of life-bound magical treasure do you want to forge?”
“One has to forge a life-bound magical treasure after advancing to the Fourth Stage?” Song Shuhang said. “I haven’t thought about it yet, but if possible, I would like to have a flying sword or something similar as my life-bound magical treasure. Nevertheless, I fear that a flying sword might not be too suitable for me.”
“Ahaha. In that case, you should carefully think about it as you haven’t advanced to the Fourth Stage yet. After all, one can only have one life-bound magical treasure,” Ye Si said with a smile.
Song Shuhang nodded.
Very soon, the golden book brought Song Shuhang and the others to an ancientquadrangle building 1 , stopping in its airspace. This place was where that human cultivator had stopped.
By now, these ancient quadrangle buildings were very rarely seen in the Jiangnan area.
The golden book stayed in transparent mode and sneaked into the quadrangle building while carrying Song Shuhang and the others along.
Aside from the human cultivator hiding there, the quadrangle building had no other residents.
After gazing at the cultivator below, Song Shuhang said via secret sound transmission, “Can you guys tell from which sect is he from?”
Ye Si said, “I have no idea. Actually, I don’t even know which sects are still left in China.”
Guoguo said, “He doesn’t seem to have the symbol of any sect on his clothes, and he isn’t wearing a regulation robe, either.”
Shi said, “Perhaps he’s a loose cultivator?”
Zhu said, “Or perhaps he’s trying to hide his real identity. After all, you can’t let others recognize you while you are doing bad things.”
Just as they were discussing, the cultivator in the quadrangle building started to take off his outer robe…
“Is he planning to take a bath?” Song Shuhang said. If the opposite party wanted to take a bath, he wouldn’t mind missing the scene. He had no interest in seeing another man bathing, for it would just tarnish his eyes.
After shedding his clothes, the cultivator was left in his shorts. His body was full of runes, which were linked to each other and basically covered his entire body.
“Huff… just a little more,” the cultivator said in a soft voice.
After saying this much, he arrived in front of a dressing table and stretched out his hand, pulling out the drawers and revealing several make-up tools inside.
After sitting in front of the dressing table, he looked at his picture reflected in the mirror, staying silent for a short while.
After a short moment, he started applying make-up on his face.
First, he smeared some pre-makeup cream on his face, then he also applied some BB cream. Next, he applied eye shadow, wore cosmetic contact lens, applied false eyelashes, and even applied lipstick…
Just what was that guy doing…?
In the quadrangle building, the cultivator let his long hair hang loose and skilfully wore it into a good-looking hairstyle.
That very ordinary man had now turned into a charming woman.
The cultivator looked at his appearance in the mirror and revealed a satisfied smile on his face.
“…” Song Shuhang.
The ‘makeup-applying technique’ was worthy of being one of the four great demonic techniques… it was simply scary. Previously, whenever one thought of finding an in-game wife while playing video games, they would ask the other party to make a video call to make sure that they weren’t a man pretending to be a woman. But now, even video calls had lost their purpose and become useless!
“What is he trying to do?” Ye Si blinked her eyes.
Song Shuhang said, “I don’t know, either. Perhaps this guy likes to pose as a streamer girl?”
But right at this time, that cultivator got up from the dressing table and wore red bridal clothes.
What was this guy trying to do in the end?
They hadn’t come here to watch him have fun wearing female clothes!
